Challenge

Over 80% of Nigerian children are amputated are as a result of trauma (accidents, infections, mismanaged fracture) A small percentage of these children living with disabilities receive the inclusive education that they need, many families view children with disability as liability thereby resulting to neglect and abuse. Many are beggars on the streets hence they may not have the opportunity to access education, employment, marriage or even live a self-sufficient life like other children.

Solution

The Irede Foundation empowers children by providing prosthetic limbs to child amputees. The public, caregivers and parents would be educated about congenital and acquired limb loss, how to relate and the need to care for them. The support group also helps the children and parents cope with the challenges they face daily.

Long-Term Impact

We will empower 40 children and more allowing them to live their lives to the fullest, which would enable them live independently, reduce stigmatization, builds and increases their self esteem and general well being.
